The Office Kelly Ryan

Mindy Kaling thinks that her character from The Office may be behind bars for mudering her boyfriend. Kaling, who wrote twenty-two episodes of the iconic NBC sitcom, spoke with Variety and suggested that there is a measurable chance that believes Kelly killed Ryan after they ran away together.

“There’s not an insignificant part of me that thinks Kelly might be in jail,” Kaling said. “Crime of passion? The character just kept getting a little bit more and more unhinged. I don’t want to say that she murdered Ryan, but I’m also not convinced that he’s still alive in the world of The Office.”

The two characters (played by Kaling and BJ Novak) had a strained relationship in the sitcom and were off-and-on for eight seasons before running away together in the series finale.
